going to be rich and i'll make money and my mama will never have to work a day in her life. >> i told her that when i was 7. >> you looked her in the face and said you're never going to have to work. >> i'm going to be rich and make a lot of money. >> all because of the ridicule. all because of what i saw. i saw things differently, and what i was exposed to. she took me out of the inner city and put me on the other side of town. i was the jackie baseball league. >> from humble beginning to defensive moves on the field, sanders made a name for himself, one that he would never forget, prime time and i give you the brand and that's who you want to see, you didn't want to be the guy that didn't curse, and never smoked and never been high. >> never smoked and never been high and stopped cursing in college. >> wow! >> that was -- nobody wants to
no. >> don't nobody want to see that. >> no jewelry. >> you want swag and you want something hanging on the curb and you have that she ney sequa and you wanted that flavor and they never felt the need and compassion to get to know me and i knew it. it was a use-use relationship. you use me, i use you. that was the extent of the relationship and sooner or later i got tired game. >> when i heard your teammates play, this is across the teams and deion, not only was he gifted, but he was the hardest working person on the team. do you feel that way? >> there was never no football camp or baseball camp or basketball. it was self-taught because i remembered this promise i had. >> right. >> you can lie to anybody else in life, but when you start lying to yourself you become a fool. >> i can't lie to me. i made myself a promise that i

and i love you now. i'm a dad and i have two sons and you inspire us dads to be better fathers. >> you have to be in the darn game as fathers because when we get in the game as fathers and start raising these kids and being there for these kids and channeling these kids and provoking change in these kids they won't throw stones because the reason they pick up the stone is because they dropped their hope. >> deion sa thank you very much for blessings us and thank you for being who yo coming up, our entrepreneur of the week on fleeing the civil war and finding a land of opportunity. stay with us. ? ? she trusts me, so i'm here for her at every step. how you feel, champ? 1-2. give it to me. nice, roll. cause better doesn't just happen overnight. it takes work. lunch! mcdonald's new chicken mcnuggets.

migrated to the united states and totally different culture and how were you able to adjust and be a part of it seamlessly? >> coming here i was ready for america because i was starved. i was starved for education, opportunity and just being able to just be a kid again. >> after college adina began pursuing ownership on a larger scale. >> i remember buying my first house and had every penny and everything i had just to be in the the first six months we'd been on the floor. literally on the floor because i had no furniture and no money to buy furniture, but it was okay, all of that sacrifice made that transaction so worthwhile because i can look back and say, wow, i did this. i did it. >> with her ambition leading the way, adina beganic maing strides toward her next goal to open an ihop in her community no matter how many doors were shut.
seven local banks and seven local banks said no to me so after the seventh no, you were not deterred. >> no. the next thing was no for something else and i would fix that. i started working at ihop on the weekends. i said i will come moonlight. you don't even have to pay me. i'll be here just learning. the reason the restaurant got from there was a conversation i had from corporate, and i remember getting the c information from ihop corporate and i'm very interested in doing a deal and got off the phone with the gentleman and ten minutes later i had my first restaurant. >> i can help you, please in. >> that was the big break adina needed. from there she became the youngest franchisee in ihop's history. it was the fastest-growing ihop in the northeast with increases in revenue each and every year since 2009.

?? not just anyone can pitch like all-star jacob degrom, but anyone could save money with geico. geico. proud partner of the new york mets. welcome back. he started out rocking the runway with his sports apparel. tamil robinson's pro-bowl all-star jerseys are turning up on everyone from tom braid toe jay-z. now from the corner office we get the lowdown on the style and spirit that's taken him from newark to the top.
>> i come from the urban areas of the north and it wasn't like the best place to look at, but my artistic background always took me to another place. i didn't want to do fashion so to speak because was a big sports fan. by way of the sports and getting to sports life and saying that's apparel. it would become a fashion my transition and they would see the era. the transition for me was wanting to know more about the different textiles, and that's what really brought me into wanting to do like more fashionable things. so it came from me and always sprang on them and always doing something to denim whether it was rhinestones or painting on
the best thing that ever happened to me because it opened the door not only to relationships, but to a growth as a designer. my mentor was glen senior and he was a master patternmaker in new york and he worked for the different fashion houses and he basically instilled in me to expand on my artistic background and my background basically was streetwear. it was hip-hop, it was sports licensing, and it wasn't really the beautiful textile pattern that i create now or the dresses. he saw in me something a little bit more and he saw an image. the opportunity to work gave me a whole new global touch, global reach. >> with that being said, i felt
overseas and working with the factories direct and learning and you know, giving that whole essence of the business of fashion that merged with the talent and normally you would build a collection and go to a buyer and it has preview neiman-marcus, and i just felt that the political aspect of it made a younger company, you know, minority owned, and i think we wanted to try something a little more different and not to say that we won't go and deal with the department store, but it had to be a win-win situation. going the whole e-commerce site.
e-commerce. i would like to call it a virtual shop. it gives me a whole different feel and, you know, it gives you a feel like you're at the mall and you're shopping. it's much more easier than being in a department store because if someone in australia who, you know, who we have a lot of fans or with japan they can go right on these shops. >> coming up, dreaming big. the program to imagination to new horizons. imagination to new horizons. ?? ?? ?? mary buys a little lamb. one of millions of orders on this company's servers. accessible by thousands of suppliers and employees globally. but with cyber threats on the rise, mary's data could be under attack. with the help of at&t, and security that senses and mitigates cyber threats, their critical data is safer than ever. giving them the agility to be open & secure.
